Fucking Hails Guys
how are you?!?!
I have a small TECH question i would like to do .
I just bought a JACKSON DKMGFF and when i received it, i just realized it has a archtop body and a LOW Profile Floyd rose bridge.

heres my question : i want to sell the body and the bridge , and build one to fit the neck.
Will i be forced to Buy a low profile Bridge? or can i buy a regular floyd rose bridge and use with it without problems?

do you need photos of the guitar in question??

If you're going to build the body, you can use whatever bridge you want. You will just have to adjust the neck angle to match the particular bridge you choose.

Hey Man
thank you for the input... im thinking about buying either a schaller bridge or an OFR bridge.
now i have adifferent question.. If i decide to get a Used Jackson Body off Ebay. which model should i look for to fit this guitar neck?!?!?
i dont want any archtop body,
the guitar in question is a 24 FRETS 25.5 scale length.

To my knowledge, all Jackson bolt-on guitars have the same size hell and neck pocket, so any Jackson body should fit.
Just make sure that the body is from another 24 fret, 25.5" scale guitar or you won't be able to set the intonation right.
As for the Schaller or OFR, they have different dimensions, and will drop right in on different Jacksons, depending on the original trem.
The Schaller is a direct-swap with the JT-500 and JT-590, and the OFR will direct-swap with the JT-580 Low Profile, IIRC.

I would say to look for a body from a DK2M. They are flat-top and readily available, as people get the DK2M for the maple neck and then sell off the body.
